A Note on This Beer
Today’s Bourbon Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter earns its spot as one of the Top 25 Baltic Porters in the World on Untappd for its unheard of levels of bold, chewy flavors.
Those softies in 18th century Eastern Europe who created this boozy style never thought to take it to the same crafty extremes as Florida's Cycle Brewing!
After all, Cycle didn't become one of Thrillist's Best Breweries in the State by playing it safe.
These Sunshine State craft masters took the European-style and Americanized the hell out of it, aging it in Bourbon barrels for over a year! The result is a Porter that’s thicker, richer, and more decadent than just about anything you’ll find across the pond.
Every mouthful of the 10% ABV goliath swims with the smooth-sipping qualities of a traditional Porter, the oaky character of Bourbon, and the clean, malty signature Old World-style finish.
Open the bottle and aromas of sticky toffee and vanilla swell from the thick-as-molasses pour. Rich notes of dark fruits, caramel and chocolate malt make for a sweet, robust body. Smoky char from the barrel-aging appears on the finish, complementing the chewy mouthfeel and making every sip wash down silky smooth.
And with its massive 4.32 rating on UT, today’s Porter ranks higher than similar offerings from Side Project, Jack’s Abby, and Hill Farmstead. Tell that to any Dark Beer fan and watch as they start drooling in delight!
Add a stamp to your stash’s passport and snag a bottle of this boozy treat to sip and savor. Grab a few extras to share with your Dark Beer lovin’ buds and they’ll be forever indebted to you for introducing them to these Florida globe-trotters.
